District Staff, Students and Families Recognize School Board
In Duncanville ISD, we have been celebrating Board of Trustees all year long and will continue to do so as part of January’s School Board Recognition Month.
It began in August, when the Duncanville ISD School Board was named the Region 10 Outstanding School Board of the Year. A couple of months later, the district leadership was Top 5 Honor Board Finalist in the state.
The school board members volunteer their time to serve in this elected position. Each of them love this community and make personal sacrifices to support our schools. The trustees set the vision and outline the road map for Duncanville ISD.
To recognize their hard work, each campus donated artwork with the theme “Rising Above” that was displayed in the boardroom over the past week.
Golf Team Standouts Achieve Special Recognition
Duncanville ISD is home to quite a few championship sports teams. Included in that list is the girls and boys golf teams. Their team members have been making great strides and putting Duncanville on the map for golf.
In recent competitions, both the varsity and junior varsity teams had top finishes.
Varsity Boys Team – 2nd Place in the Scorpion Open at Southern Oaks Golf Course
Junior Varsity Boys Team – 1st Place in the Cedar Hill Open at Grand Oaks Golf Course
Wyatt King – 2nd Place in the Scorpion Open at Southern Oaks Golf Course
Hayley Bell – 1st Place in the Pink Out at Walnut Creek Country Club
Hayley Bell – 1st Place in the Rowlett Round Up at Waterview Golf Course
Duncanville ISD Superintendent Dr. Marc Smith opened his report celebrating the Duncanville High School football team for their State Runner-Up finish at AT&T Stadium in December. It’s not the ending they hoped for, but you cannot take for granted the grit, skill and dedication it takes to make it to the state championship football game four times in the past five years.
Dr. Smith also shared information about the district’s middle school choice programs –Byrd Middle School Health Science Program, STEAM Academy at Kennemer Middle School, and Reed Middle School Business & Technology Program. All three programs are accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year.
